Valerie recently graduated from Arellano University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology under ETEEAP (Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accredited Program).
The ETEEAP, as defined by CHED, refers to "a comprehensive educational assessment program at the tertiary level that recognizes, accredits and gives equivalencies to knowledge, skills, attitudes and values gained by individuals from relevant work." It is implemented through deputized HEIs that award the appropriate college degree.
De Vera noted high school graduates who have been unable to proceed to tertiary education or college students who stopped schooling collectively called "Lifelong Learners" may take the ETEEAP. "They don't have to take all the subjects that are required...some of the subjects can be credited through an equivalency system of the things that they have done in their lives," he said.
ETEEAP, De Vera explained, has different modes depending on the delivering HEI.
Currently, De Vera said that there are 96 deputed HEIs that offer ETEEAP - of which, 71 are private universities and 25 are state universities.
De Vera underscored the importance of expanding the ETEEAP delivering universities.
